Our silver jewellery is made of 925 nickel-free sterling silver. It is a solid and durable material that makes the jewellery less sensitive. However, it is important that you take care of your jewellery so that you can enjoy it for many years.
Silver jewellery worn daily will darken over time due to oxidation and dirt. This phenomenon has several explanations, partly because our skin excretes salts and minerals. It also depends on grease, skin cream and impurities in the air. By regularly cleaning your jewellery, you delay the process. However, it is relatively easy to remove these discolorations.
To remove everyday dirt from the jewellery, you can put it in hot water with a few drops of dish soap. Let them sit for a few minutes and then brush away the dirt with a toothbrush.
When a gray or yellowish coating has formed on the jewellery, this is most easily removed with a silver polishing cloth. If the dirt does not come off, it may be an idea to do a rougher cleaning with bicarbonate or baking soda. It is a more environmentally friendly and effective cleaning.
It bubbles and fizzes when bicarbonate/baking powder comes into contact with water. This is because bicarbonate/baking powder gives off carbonic acid. This is nothing dangerous, but part of the process.
